A STUDY, Biographical and Somewhat Critical in the History of the Scottish Covenant, by Rev. ROBERT GILMOUR
By the Rev. ROBERT GILMOUR
"Mr Gilmour has done his work admirably. We hope that this will not be his last contribution to biography. There is a fine discrimination characterising the book.”—Saint Andrew.
"A popular exposition-a book which may be commended to young people desirous of learning in brief compass something of a man who left a strong impress of his work on the history of his country."-Scotsman.
"No book could be more appropriate as to the time and manner of its appearance than is this study of Samuel Rutherford."-North British Advertiser.
"A most excellent book."—Kilmarnock Herald.
"His presentation of Rutherford is winning, like the saint's own character, and his book is a really valuable contribution to the study of Covenant testimony and literature.”—Dunfermline Journal.
"The latest biographer of Samuel Rutherford has plainly, at all events, endeavoured to hold the balance level and true in his estimate of this great Scottish reformer. He has certainly done justice to his religious and patriotic enthusiasm, his intellectual acumen, and his strenuous sincerity of conviction." -Scottish Historical Review.
"For style, spirit, insight, sympathy, and knowledge, it is all that can be demanded or desired."-Outlook, Dunedin, N.Z.
"Has set the Saint of the Covenant in his environments, thereby enabling the reader to see him and understand the motives by which he was actuated, the persons with whom he had to do, the work he accomplished, and the saintly life he lived, which was closed so fittingly with a radiance from Immanuel's land.”—Christian News.
"This is a volume of Church history, which, in the hands of young people, will have a high value, lifting the veil from one of the noblest Christian lives ever recorded. The style is popular, so that the simplest reader will thoroughly enjoy the reading; while every earnest mind will be moved by the well-told story of the little fair man,' who gave us a book described by Charles Haddon Spurgeon as the nearest thing to inspiration which can be found in all the writings of mere men. Christian.
"Mr Gilmour writes good, clear, nervous English.... There is a capital index to the book, and the chapters are well laid out. It is a handy, a deeply interesting, and a sanctifying volume."-Reformed Presbyterian Witness.
